FRENCH MARKET: +0.2 % in September
In September, French producer prices in industry slightly rose by 0.2 % (+0.0 % in August) on the French market. This movement is attributable to a new rise in petroleum products prices combined with an occasional rise in electricity prices.
Driven by a rise in Brent crude prices sourced from the North Sea (+0.6 % in dollars and +4.7 % in euros), prices of refined petroleum products increased by 2.2 % (+3.3 % for heating oil, +2.7 % for diesel oil and +1.7 % for unleaded premium gas).
In September, food products prices fell (-0.2 %), after +0.1% in July and August. Dairy products prices were the only ones to rise (+0.5%) ; meat products prices were unchanged while beverages prices fell markedly (-1.2 % for wine and -2% for malt), as well as prepared animal feeds (-1.3%).
Prices of “other manufactured products” fell by 0.1% in September, after +0.1% in August. The seasonal increase (new collection) of wearing apparel (+1.9%) and textile prices (+0.4%) linked with cotton prices was offset by a fall in the prices of chemical products (–0.7%) and rubber and plastics prices (-0.4%).
FOREIGN MARKETS: 0.0% in September
Producer prices of French industrial products sold on foreign markets were unchanged in September, after –0.2% in August. The slight decline in “other manufactured products” prices, most notably chemical products (-0.7%) and basic metals products prices (–0.3%), was offset by a rise in refined petroleum products prices (+2.1%).
ALL MARKETS: +0.2% in September
On all markets, producer prices of French industrial products increased by 0.2%, after -0.1% in August.
Imported industrial products prices rose by 0.8% in September, following a decline of 0.5% in August. In September, as in August, the movement of imported industrial products prices was mainly attributable to a rise in crude oil and refined petroleum products prices.
